Harold Anton Placek married Olive Mary LaCanne on Saturday, June 15, 1935.
Best Man and Matron of Honor (on the left) were Jim Stibor (also a cousin of Harold) and Dorothea Frook (a sister of Olive). Groomsman and Bridesmad (on the right) were Carl Krause and Julia Placek (Harold’s sister).
As a student at NSB High, Bob Placek was selected to go on a Navy trip where they cruised from Jacksonville to Norfolk. Perhaps he was interested in the Navy, but my guess is he took the trip just for the plane rides at the beginning and end!

From the October 14, 1954 edition of “The Pelican”:
After moving the family to New Smyrna Beach from Racine, Grandpa Placek started a local business selling and servicing televisions. Article includes information on the family.
Bob was a brother of the Phi Kappa Tau fraternity at the University of Florida (Alpha Eta chapter). He is the third from the left in the row next to the bottom.
